Data Protection Solution. Crossroads asserts that the Huawei entities
have incorporated Crossroads' patented technology into Huawei's

has licensed the '972 Patent Family to more than 40 companies and

the value of our '972 Patent Family," said Richard K. Coleman, Jr.,
President and CEO at Crossroads Systems. "Crossroads has invested
millions of dollars developing and protecting the technology covered
by our patents. We're committed to protecting our shareholders by
